Also called the Dark Blue Star Creeper, this groundcover is sure to put a smile on your face. The tightly-woven mat of dark green, pointy foliage spreads on both the top and bottom of the soil. Throughout the spring, summer, and fall, it shows off its bright blue, starry flowers. Be sure to provide moist, well-drained soil in sun to part shade. This fragrant, long-blooming groundcover can tolerate foot traffic on its low, even growth. It hugs the ground, blending into the garden, and often attracts butterflies and bees.
Pratia pedunculata 'County Park' does well when planted between paving stones, as a lawn substitute, as edging on a walkway, around ponds, in rock gardens, and even in containers.
